Leadership can be summed up in one word – influence. It is the ability to influence another to go a certain direction in thought or action. Your influence (leadership) will be seen in your example. I Timothy 4:12 says you are to lead by example. It says in this verse to “…be thou an example of the believers in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.” The Bible states that your example is viewed in your speech and lifestyle, demonstrated with love and empowered by the Spirit of God, lived out by believing God to be true at His Word and your actions above reproach. Review the example you have provided to those in your sphere of influence in the last 48 hours. What kind of example did you provide and where did that example lead others? Think about the words you exchanged with your spouse, children, and friends. Recall the lifestyle you modeled for your co-workers, neighbors, or even those you didn’t know were watching you. You may need to be honest before God and man (II Cor. 8:21) this week to provide leadership that makes a difference of eternal gains. A strong leader…a Biblical leader…admits wrong. Such a confession will lead you to restoration for excellent leadership. This repentant heart will also lead others to the greatest example of all time – Jesus Christ. Be thou an example of the believer… I’ll be looking for you this Sunday!  Faithful & Forward in 2014!

What is your relationship with God like?

"In the beginning in the form of God
With just a word you sang creation's song
But when by sin humanity was marred
You took on flesh to save a world gone wrong

At Calvary the soldiers chose the nails
To fasten you upon the cruel tree
The hammer drove into your sinless hands
The nails you chose to pay sin's penalty

You are the Christ, Son of the living God
My rebel heart in mercy you pursued
No other name deserves my praise
You are my life, my all, and I belong to you."

--Andy Gleiser
